Emily graduated with honours from the University of Queensland and has since moved down to Melbourne to practice Exercise Physiology. Emily’s passion for human movement stemmed from her 15-year dance background and additional dance teaching with a focus on ballet and contemporary. This experience has aided in developing techniques in instructing body awareness as well as core stability retraining and flexibility.
Emily is passionate about biomechanical retraining for amputee and prosthetic mobility. This interest was encouraged through volunteering in wheelchair rugby and basketball with Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association Queensland as well as her affiliation with Disability Sport and Recreation Victoria. Emily has also been involved in the 2017 Össur Mobility Clinic and 2017 Ottobock LIMB-itless Conference aimed at improving overall mobility in amputees. She also attended the 2017 Australian Orthotics and Prosthetics Congress in 2017, and is currently studying her Masters in Clinical Prosthetics and Orthotics at La Trobe University.
Her interests also include rehabilitation for cardiac, diabetes and fall prevention populations with an additional focus on education. Emily aims to provide her clients with individualised programs, meeting their specific needs in order to optimise quality of life.
Outside of the clinic, Emily enjoys travelling, hiking and painting. Her most memorable hikes include The Milford Track in New Zealand and Mount Vesuvius in Italy.
Service areas include: Ivanhoe, Bundoora, St Kilda and surrounding suburbs.
